Project for Women: New Influencers – Profile on Tiffany Shlain






On September 18, 2015, the world will join Emmy-nominated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain for Character Day- a day of thousands of events around the globe where people will simultaneously premiere short powerful and entertaining films, dive into resources from scientists, educators and media experts, and join an online Google Hangout exploring how to live meaningful, successful and purposeful lives in today’s 24/7 world. This event marks one of the dynamic and intricate ways Tiffany continues to capture and captivate her audience with meaningful observations, guidance, and conversations about how life in the technical world can be alive, innovative, purposeful, and grateful. Through the observance of a “Technical Shabbat” each Friday with her family and friends (where all technology is shut down for 24 hours), Tiffany has learned the deepest appreciation for her loved ones and the value of “turning off” to spark creativity and enlightenment. We talk to Tiffany about her curiosity and inspiration, and offer you the opportunity to shut down your computer (of course, after this article) and join in this deeply, profound movement.
